This is absolutely wonderful! It's been too long since I've had Cracker Barrel's potatoes to say how close of a copy this recipe is, but I really don't care. It's better than any other hash brown casserole that I've tried; the beef broth makes a difference. I did used diced instead of shredded hashbrowns.

This is so good! I don't care if the recipe is different than the real one, this tastes amazingly close and I enjoy it (made exactly as stated) each time we have it for breakfast! PS DH says he could eat a whole casserole all by himself! :)

This is by FAR the best recipe on RecipeZaar for the Cracker Barrel Hashbrown Casserole. I have tried other recipes that call for the canned soups and we think they taste NOTHING like the real thing. My husband is a Cracker Barrel freak so we eat there often and this recipe is DEFINATELY the closest! Wonderful flavor, easy to make and leaves everyone satisfied and happy!! THANKS for the great recipe!!

This is as close as it gets. Thanks for a great recipe. Uses this as a side to grilled steak. Husband loved it!!!! Other recipes added canned soups which I don't believe is there. I added a dash of allspice to the recipe. YUMMY!!!!!

I don't know how close this is to the real thing, but I can say that it's really yummy! The beef broth gives it a deeper flavor than most similar casseroles. While it's not quite as creamy as some others, it's still cheesey and tasty. This is a keeper. Thanx!

This recipe is perfect! It tasted just like the restaurant version, if not better! I am preparing a double batch today to cook half and freeze half. Thanks for the great recipe!!! **Oh, and I used chicken stock instead of beef broth and still delish!

This was very, very good. The first time I made it, I only had Cheddar Cheese & cubed potatoes on hand so used them 'cause I had a craving for this dish. It was ok. Next time I made it with the right ingredients & it was wonderful! It is so much better with Colby & the shredded potatoes ! I like that there is NO canned soup in it. I will def make this again!

Just a wonderful recipe we often make this for any meal from breakfast to supper. I could eat this until I'm forced to take a nap from all of the comforting starchy carbs :-)
